I think the thing "resisters" object to is that the blanket reduction would take discretion out of the hands of individual districts. Essentially, the mandate would reduce the number of non-league games that schools could play. This doesn't need a mandate from the state or section. Non-league games are voluntary. The athletic director or school board could decide on their own to reduce the number of non-league games or eliminate them entirely. For example, the 8th grade soccer teams at the school in my town don't play any non-league games at all. Though frankly, I think some of this is that some ADs or boards would like to to reduce the number of games but are afraid of pissing off boosters and are eager for someone else to take the heat instead.
